There is nothing better than loving your nest.
Getting your house to a place where you love your space can be expensive and overwhelming and did we mention expensive? Here we aim to help you find easy and affordable ways to make your house feel like YOUR home.
Why do we call ourselves The Drop Cloth? Three big reasons - we believe that paint can improve almost anything, just about everyone can afford a can of paint, and well, we are far from professionals - so the drop cloth is needed. Home improvement can be tricky, and most DIY blogs tell a nearly perfect story of project execution. Not The Drop Cloth, here we try to be as honest about what you are about to (er, already?) get yourself into. You will see our mistakes just as much as our successes.
We will also be honest about the difficulty of a project. Our rating scale will help you sort options based on your skill level or courage!
DIYers are a special breed - welcome to our club. We love to hear your stories! And don't forget your Drop Cloth.
Paintbrushes and power tools were part of Michelle’s everyday life growing up. Her family DIY'ed everything, so you could say these home projects are pretty much in her DNA. At 24 she purchased her first house and rehabbed every inch of it with her father. Now on house #3, she has over 3000 sq. feet of updates and renovations to tackle. Today, a corporate senior leader, wife and mother of two, home projects are more than a hobby – they are her therapy. Some people read, some workout, Michelle paints her house (a lot). She hopes that by sharing her experiences that everyone can see it is possible and affordable to love their home.
BJ has always had a passion for leading others. Working full-time in collegiate athletics for a national association and coaching prior to that, she knows what it takes to succeed and how to motivate those around her. DIY and home improvement have always been an escape from her daily grind and now relocating from Pittsburgh, PA to Chesapeake, VA, she has a 1,2000 square foot blank canvas all her own for new projects. She hopes to “coach” you through these home improvement projects and encourage you along the way.
